McCain’s Victory Lap on the Senate Floor

The best moment may have been McCain bumping into Sen. Thad Cochran, R-Miss. Cochran recently gave McCain a half-hearted endorsement, a couple weeks after telling reporters: “He is erratic. He is hotheaded. He loses his temper and he worries me.” (They’ve had brutal battles over earmarks.) When McCain saw Cochran on the floor today he walked over and gave him a big back-slapping Senate hello, they talked for about 15 seconds, then embraced each other.

See, this really is a club.
